Playing A 78 Rpm Record On A Cheap BSR Turntable




What do you think about this video?

Bobby Brady: BSR was popular in the 1970s...with low end manufacturers, not with consumers. They were horrible. The turntables ran at inaccurate speeds, you could hear the sloppily engineered and fitted gears clicking through the change cycle creating quite a commotion and the plastic platters without mats did a great job of scratching your records and transferring noise. Thank goodness for Magnavox who stuck with Collaro until the bitter end, and Zenith who stayed with VM (at least on their more expensive units) until VM folded.

eric foster: My BSR is 34 years old and plays as good as if it where new. I have the tracking weight just above having it skip and all 150 of my records look like brand new. I also clean the stylus with a plastic model paint brush at each use to prevent skipping and to make it last longer. If you take a little care to them their not half bad. I also had one before this one , a 50's model I sold (doh!) that was even better.
